The Impact of Stress on Learning, Emotions and Behavior in Kids with Dyslexia, ADHD and other special needs. What do we know; What to DO?
Presented by Jerome Shultz, Ph.D.
Because of their neurocognitive and emotional vulnerabilities, children and adolescents with Learning Disabilities and/or ADHD are particularly at risk for stress-related disorders and reactions. Neuroscience explains the problem and gives us the knowledge we need to turn this situation around. Dr. Schultz will present research, clinical observations, case studies and anecdotal evidence to explain why children and adolescents with LD and/or ADHD (and other special needs) have a lower threshold for stress due to their repeated experiences with failure.
